Small Is Only A Word - Poem by Velmar Pewee Hale Johnson

Darling you may be little, but you're not alone,
there's hundreds who are smaller, and don't even have a home.
Big city streets, and giant stores, factories of great galore.
In a world built just for big people, few people are really tall,
and once in a while deep down inside everyone feels a little small.
People seem to pass us by, laugh, scoff, and spit in our eyes,
they step on our feelings, and make us cry.
So baby I just want to say, I love you any way you are,
rich, poor, small, or tall, I love you all.
A big bum, or short star,
Whether you drive a motorcycle, or a cadillac car.
Baby I just love you the way you are.
Remember baby you can't change your size,
so quit telling yourself all those lies.
Be proud of who you are, and begin a brand new start.
For you're as big as you feel, and I've got a feeling you've got a pretty big heart.
